I will try to describe to you in simple terms here. There are a series of screws you will see on the bottom of the lap top. There screws have to be removed all of them before proceeding to clean the computer further. You will also see approx: 3 small screws under the battery when you remove the battery these screws are for the plate that goes across that has the power button etc. Remove those as well then remove the plate and the keyboard be sure to remember where all the screws go back to.
Now the keyboard may need to be replaced it sounds like it was a device that did not make it through the coffee spill and the drying process. There will also be one or two small screws that hold the keyboard down you will see those once you remove the power button plate. Remove those screws carefully take a small screw driver and push the holder for the keyboard cable clip to unlock the clip to remove the cable be very gentle when doing this removal. Observe how it came apart and this will be how to re-install a new keyboard.
You can get new keyboards at Amazon.com this is where I get them at. The process once you get into it and be extremely careful is not that difficult to do as you begin to expose the case pieces once apart. Do not use any wet fluids to clean the parts with. Dry clean only using a soft cloth and take your time.
Enjoy and have fun with it I find it rather interesting more so than a desktop PC repair. Thanks for using FixYa! Do not forget to vote for me John

Number lock key


1. Please tap the NumLock key many times and see if it responds to the tap,

2. Probably your keyboard is in "Alt Fn" mode, so please try to hold the Fn key and tap the Fn key (I prefer to tap the left arrow and right arrow) and see if the keyboard is working properly.

3. Probably your keyboard is failed. It happens, even there is no spill accident. In this case, you need to replace the entire keyboard.

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


Hello,

There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Maybe I pressed the wrong key or something but out of the sudden my keyboard don't work anymore. Any help?It is a msi vr 601


You have activated most likelly with "Fn" <capslock> those tiny small ciphers on the keys nobody normally tazkes notice of and not all keyboards have them. Unlock by pressing Fn <capslock> again. Some laptops have exrtra keys for locking the keyboards. in case you have - try those.

Unable to connect to the internet


Hi akiefer_811,

All you need to do is enable the wireless receiver on the u100. To do this, hold down the Function key ("Fn" - in the lower left corner of your keyboard) and press F11 (there should be a satellite-shaped icon on the F11 key). Once you've done this, it should detect any accessible wireless network within range.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
